Yeah like I said I would be hauling too. 911 response is pretty decent here being a tad on the urban side and its a guaranteed front of the line at the er. Otherwise you could be filling bandages with blood and youll sit for hours (happened to me when I needed 15 stiches) I sat in the er room filling up paper towels cause they didnt seem to care.

But yeah if my son was in that situation under the same conditions Id have done the same thing.

Headed for Bill Moore lake today. Was a bit tuffer then trail reports clams, but had some fun. Got just passed the mud pit and found 4+ feet of snow, so couldn't get to it but ran into an offroad group when up there. The wife and niece had a blast. Enjoy

I have to start on this soon. What did you use for a guide? I have heard the YouTube video is pretty easy to follow along with.

I installed a custom USB port in my 2000 laredo on my center console for charging electronics. I will be installing another one for charging and a third in the middle for connecting to other divices in the future.

i am thinking about taking my extra console i have and installing the same to sell if anyone is interested PM me.

Nice idea, very clever. Can i ask where you got the leather console lid for your laredo? I have an Overland with the mesh laredo lid and i'm looking for a leather one.

I had a feeling that would come up... I have a laredo that is crossed bread with the overland, limited, and special edition. Overland steering wheel and arm rest lid. Steering wheel was easy to find but that leather arm rest WOW was extremely difficult. the black leather on is rare so rare that i could only find one in the united states that was available. if i were ever to sell it i would ask 200 and if i wanted it again like i did i would had paid 300 at the time.

I feel your pain, going crazy trying to find one. Even if i could get the light gray one from a 02-03 Overland but man i cant find any out there. Never thought a console lid would be so scarce. If you ever plan to sell the jeep and/or lid let me know, id be willing to work a deal.

Why don't you just just take your lid to an upholstery or vinyl shop and have them wrap and stitch yours in leather or vinyl???

There are 0 leather shops by me. Plus it will probably cost just as much to wrap the one i have (since it would need padding too) as to buy a factory made one. I had another Overland that came with the leather lid and that thing was so comfortable (i know its a armrest but still..)

I honestly can't imagine it being too expensive considering the fact that it will be brand new leather as opposed to being from an 8 year old overland, plus you could choose different colored stitching or even pay them an arm and a leg to embroider "jeep" into the thing. But then again there aren't any near you so that blows you up

cost is not good to get it custom wrapped and it would not look good i tried that route and it did not turn out good. i have seen others who did that too and same results for them.

the gray leather one is not as rare and in fact i thought for a year of looking that was the only color they made until i spotted the black! i had to buy a whole console to get just the lid so it ran me alot of money and now i have an extra console in perfect shape just like the one in the truck currently so it kind of sucks but i love the lid!

my search has never ended since finding one for myself and when i get another one or multiples i will be selling them just not 200 like i said but a fair market value will be set depending on my costs invested and time.

Did this a year ago today to repair my leaky ac evaporator core. I used a combination of the FSM and the guide of wj Jeeps to do it. Whole job took about 8 hours and didn't require any special tools. There's a great time lapse YouTube video of two techs doing the job. It's not so much a hard job as it is time consuming. Also, you'll need a second person to help you remove and install the dash assembly.
